Pioneered by Jaime Carbonell Raj Reddy Michael Shamos Gloriana St Clair and Robert Thibadeau
of Carnegie Mellon University, the goal of The Million Book Project is to digitize a million
books by 2005. The task will be accomplished by scanning the books and indexing their full
text with OCR technology. The undertaking will create a free-to-read, searchable digital
library the approximate size of the combined libraries at Carnegie Mellon University, and
one much bigger than the holdings of any high school library. The pilot Thousand Book
Project has already been successfully completed and can be accessed here.
